Style: Menswear Inspired

Perhaps inspired by the Comme des Garcons/Like the Boys post from last week, I felt the urge to express my masculine side, which, much like my feminine side, involves scowling arrogantly, greedily stuffing junk food down my throat, and telling other people what to do. Trousers, J. Crew; oxford shirt, vest, and suspenders, thrifted; shoes, Charles David; Porkpie hat, Hats in the Belfry; Watch, Timex

Easter Style: Suited Up

Suit and clutch, vintage; necklace, local designer Nomad; shoes, Guiseppe Zanotti I'm back from a much-needed break, hoping you had a lovely Easter/vernal equinox/whatever you celebrated. Time with my family + marshmallow Peeps = a great time for me! Pictured above:  this year's Easter suit, which is really just a vintage suit from the 80's given to me by a former co-worker who would regale me with stories of strutting around offices (when smoking was allowed indoors!)

Style: Blue Crush

I'm usually more of a purple person (thanks, Prince), but for some reason bright blue seems really fresh to me right now. Maybe it's because warmer weather is coming and blue reminds me of the sky and sea. Maybe it's because blue contrasts so nicely with all the gray/black/taupe in my wardrobe (really, who needs six gray cardigans?). Maybe it's because I've been craving some of that good ol' blue Smurf ice cream from Kings

Work Style: Take Flight

This jumpsuit was yet another goodie I dug out of the trunk of my car. I want to sew some sparkly Michael Jackson-inspired patches on this sucker so badly. Just call me Maverick! Vintage jumpsuit and clutch, army surplus belt, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, Claire's earrings. *Posts will be a little light this week since I'll be working on the magazine. Cross your fingers for me!

Wear It Now

The whole "Upper East Side housewife in the Hamptons" look has never been my thing, so I have to admit, I turned my nose up a bit at Tory Burch in the past. However, her Fall/Winter 2009 collection made me do a double take and I've seriously reconsidered accepting that marriage proposal from a wealthy New York investment banker type. Wait, what? Banks are failing and the stock market is in the dumps? Oh. Nevermind
